Our task - combining tradition & modernity

 

With the environment and the consumer constantly in mind, all of our parcels are cultivated according to sustainable pest management principles, verging on organic farming practices. This method involves closely monitoring the presence and development of fungal diseases in the vines, so as to only to take action when there is a high risk of the crop being damaged. This therefore helps to reduce the use of treatments and protect fauna and flora within the Mont Sainte-Victoire site.

Throughout the vines' entire growing cycle, the soil is regularly hoed to eliminate weeds and limit the effects of drought. The fertilizers we use come from the vine: after fermentation, the grape stalks and grapes are distilled and then returned to the soil. The vine shoots are also ground down to ensure that the soil retains a certain level of stable organic matter. Each year, in autumn, we allow a shepherd to bring his herd of sheep to pasture in the vineyard, as was commonly the practice in days gone by.
